The Internet is getting smaller and smaller everyday. I have been reading
your posts on 910 pets about Aggie. I guess when we get that bad news about
our fur babies we head for the web to learn more. I so happy for you and
Aggie that she doing well.
Our vet has Kelsea on Alpha Interferon 7 days on then 7 day off. As of
Tuesday her CBC are great. She also very playful and great appetite. She is
gaining a little over a 1pound a month. Which is right on track for a
kitten. Her attitude is awesome. All the vet tech at the veterinary
hospital we bring her to here in MA love her. I been the Mass Veterinary
Hospital so much that Kelsea that the vet and I are on first name basis .
Since Aggie is asymptomatic does this meaning she still test postive for
FeLV even thou she showing no other signs of FeLV. I have heard of some cats
may test negtive after LTCI. Did Aggie FeLV show up in the bone marrow, or
just the blood?
Part of me wants to put her on LTCI now, but the other parts just wants to
wait and see how she does. Like you said this won't continue on forever,
but for now--everyday is a party with her.

Re: :LTCH--I've had reasonable success with LTCI. If you do a search in
the archives, you can read what I've written about my journey with my cat,
Aggie. She's still kicking at 6 and a half years. I've had her on Alpha
Interferon every day of her life, 1 cc every morning (and after she suffered
a seizure of unknown cause, every morning and evening). She's also been on
LTCI every two weeks since her WBC and neutrophils went downhill last
Spring. Her bloodwork has rebounded nicely, and she is currently
asymptomatic, and very playful with a fine appetite and attitude. I know
this won't continue on forever, but for now--every day is a party with her.
About the interferon, Aggie has been on it every day of her life from the
time we adopted her. She had zero symptoms of anything FELV related until
she developed adenocarcinoma of the salivary gland (cancer) at the age of 5.
We had that removed in the Summer of 09, and as I mentioned above--she's
still here. I think the Interferon may have played a role in keeping her
healthy for so long. It isn't terribly expensive, at any rate.
